Kefalonia is home to the Saristra Festival, an annual event for fans of indie and electronic music. Launched in 2012, the festival has become a mainstay, held in the ruins of the mountainside village Palia Vlachata which was abandoned after it was severely damaged in the earthquake that leveled much of the island in 1953. As much a tribute to the old villages and communities of Kefalonia as it is a boundary-pushing creative undertaking, the Saristra Festival fills the empty village with music, dancing, exhibitions and all manner of creative expressions.
